Give Your Valentine a Healthy Smile and some Clean Kisses
to Love this February!
Eye-dry kisses, soft, shy kisses, “Oh hi!” kisses, bye-bye kisses: whatever the occasion, nobody wants to be turned down as they offer a juicy kiss this Valentine’s day! Make sure this doesn’t happen to you by keeping your oral health in top shape, even in the face of some holiday sweet-tooth satisfaction.
Don’t Let Your Kisses be Sour Just Sweet!
Most candies are packed with sugars that can quickly destroy your teeth! The worst offenders of this nasty attack are sour candies, full of citric acids that rapidly destroy your tooth enamel. It’s best to avoid sour candies, from gummies that stick in your teeth easily to hard sour candies that release acid into your mouth continuously for an extended period of time, don’t let your kisses be sour for your Valentine this year!
Crack Down on Sweets that are Tough on Your Teeth
Did you know that Americans consume around 58 million pounds of chocolate between February 1st and February 14th?! That’s a lot of cavities waiting to happen. Consider giving your sweetheart something sweet from the heart this year, instead of giving into the sugar craze the grocery stores might lead you to “buy” in to.
Remember that You’re Someone Special Too
Loving yourself on Valentine’s Day and every other day of the year means taking great care of yourself each and every day and that includes your oral health! By brushing at least twice a day, and remembering to floss daily, you can keep your oral health in lovable condition for yourself and for others! Don’t forget that the healthier you eat by remembering your fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates, the sweeter your kisses will be! Nutrition affects your body’s overall function as well as your oral health, and the best way you can spoil yourself is to maintain daily healthy habits.
You can love your healthy teeth, and your Valentine can love your sweet kisses this February 14th!
